Maya Lin Makes Waves at Storm King

Friday, April 24, 2009 | |

What could be better than communing with nature and art. One of my favorite art spaces, Storm King Art Center in the Hudson Valley is now open to visitors for their 2009 season. With over 500 acres of fields and woodlands, this is a perfect space to interact with some of the greats of postwar sculpture. Artists like Richard Serra, Nam June Paik, Isamu Noguchi, and Louise Borgeois have work on the property.

Ive been waiting all winter to check out Maya Lin's Wavefields. The work is inspired by the tidal waves and currents and each wave measures 305 and 368 feet in length and, with the grasses, rises to a height of between ten and fifteen feet. I can't wait to walk through and experience such a monumental work in such a unique and serene environment. Check out a great video interview with the artist here. The exhibition opens up on May 9th.
